53rd Annual Firemen’s Carnival Goes Down as BHC’s Best Ever

The community support for the 53rd annual Beacon Hose Firemen’s Carnival was absolutely unparalleled and made us at Beacon Hose grateful and humble. Carnival chairman Kyle Brennan has a few words to share about the event:


On behalf of all of us at Beacon Hose, I want to extend my sincere thanks to everyone who joined us for our carnival this year. By every measure possible, we enjoyed our best event ever (by a long shot). That’s all thanks to the tremendous community we serve and the unrivaled dedication of our volunteers.

I, along with my awesome committee, put us out on a limb this year by turning the carnival on its head and making some big changes. With the combination of our volunteers’ hard work and our visitors’ patience, everything worked better than we could have imagined. I hope you found the lines more bearable, the atmosphere less cramped and the experience more enjoyable this year. The changes we made are here to stay, and we’ll only try to make it better next June.

53rd Beacon Hose Carnival Set for June 9-11 with New Changes

Update: Thanks for your support!

The Beacon Hose Firemen’s Carnival, one of Beacon Falls’ longest lasting and most enjoyable traditions, is set to return for the 53rd time this Thursday-Saturday, June 9-11, on the grounds of Beacon Hose.

Each June, thousands of visitors from Beacon Falls and towns all over the state join us for three nights of delicious food, cold drinks, exciting rides, great fun and engaging music to help raise funds for the civic side of Beacon Hose’s operations.

Carnivals and parades used to be common traditions among local fire departments, but many have been discontinued over the years because of the work required. We’ve made sure to continue an event that has become a town-wide tradition. Proceeds from the carnival go toward our community efforts, including sponsorship of local youth sports, fire prevention programs, educational scholarships, holiday functions, events throughout the community and opportunities for our volunteer members.

BHC Accepting Carnival Donations, Sponsorships, Parade Registrations

Update: Thanks for your support!

The 53rd Beacon Hose Firemen’s Carnival and Parade is set for this June! We hope to see our residents, friends and fellow members of the fire service from June 9-11 for delicious food, cold drinks, lots of fun, engaging music and great rides — including this year’s mechanical bull!

Our committee has been hard at work, installing a number of changes that we think will make this the best event we’ve ever held. Check out everything we’re cooking up by clicking here.

Part of our job in the lead-up to the event is soliciting donations from our residents, friends and local businesses. There is a substantial cost associated with hosting an event of this scale, and the kind donations that we receive help us maximize the benefits of this event. All proceeds benefit our community, including sponsorship of local youth sports, fire prevention programs, educational scholarships, holiday functions, events throughout the community and opportunities for our volunteer members.

Take a Survey to Help Improve the Beacon Hose Carnival

Update: Thanks for your help!

We have already begun to plan this year’s Beacon Hose Firemen’s Carnival and Parade, which has been a yearly tradition in our community since 1963. This year’s event will take place from June 9-11 on the firehouse grounds. We’ll have lots more information coming, but we need some help as we work out the details for this summer.

For the first time, we’ve put together a 10-question survey that we’re opening up to our residents and carnival-goers. It only takes about five minutes to complete, and each result will help us make necessary changes and improvements to the event.

For the first time in years, Mother Nature smiled upon us for all three days of the festivities. We enjoyed some of our best turnout and success ever, and it’s all because of people like you. We may be the ones who come save the day, but you’re the ones who make every day a great one in Beacon Falls.
